A great recipe my dad made for me. I had been craving it since, so today I made it at my mother-in-laws house and it was a huge hit there! A very tasty dish!

andouille sausage (the package i had was about 13.5 ounces)
1 tsp
garlic (to taste)
1 tsp

3 Tbsp
parmesan cheese
2 c
heavy cream
2 or more c
cooked penne noodles (or whatever noodle you prefer)

Cook noodles
2Saute chicken until almost done, then add andouille sausage, onions, bell peppers, cajun seasoning, salt, pepper, and garlic. Cook for another 5-10 minutes or until bell peppers are soft. (warning: your kitchen will smell amazing!)
